NICOLA-SIMILKAMEEN.
Lethargy of Coast People Regarding
Trade With These Districts.
It is, indeed, refreshing to find a coast
journal endeavoring to arouse the business men and politicians from their vexatious apathy regarding the Nicola and
Similkameen districts. Vancouverites
have been warned times without number
of their deadly stupor regarding the
commercial advantages of direct communication with these districts. A city so
well represented in point of numbers in
the provincial legislature, including three
cabinet ministers, ought surely to lack
nothing which would foster trade expansion. Are those ministers true to the
interests of the cityi or are they true to
the interests of a certain corporation and
consequently to themselves also ? The
B.C. Mining Exchange, of Vancouver,
says:
"The known vast resources of this portion (Nicola-Similkatneen) of our pro
vince—not merely in mineral wealth,
with which point of view a journal of
this description is more particularly concerned—render it imperative that the
people of the British Columbia seaboard
should be aroused to a knowledge of the
wealth of the interior of their province,-
and to a sense of the fact that both duty
and self-interest call for immediate steps
for closer relations and more rapid and
easy means of communication with the
storehouse of natural wealth so little distant from their own gates. The excellent
report of Di. Ells of the Dominion geological survey, upon the coal properties
in the Quilchena basin—properties in
which, it is some comfort to know, a few
coast gentlemen have had sense enough
to get interested—and the very plain
speaking of Mr. Clabon regarding the
great mineral wealth of the SimilkameeU'
should be taken promptly to heart by our
leading merchants and business men.
The Kootenays made Spokane; is the
Similkameen to make Tacoma and
Seattle?"
Telephone and Railway.
M. P. Stewart and wife came in from
Nicola last Sunday returning on Monday
afternoon. He brought with him the
latest election returns which gave Premier Laurier 69 of majority with 17 seats
to hear from ; he also stated that
ground had been broken on the Nicola &
Similkameen railway and the telephone
line was making good progress, all of
which is very acceptable and encouraging news to the majority of people here.
Mr. Stewart has great faith in the future
of the country, its mineral wealth being
a guarantee that capital will flow this
way when the condition of transportation is capable of removing the raw pro
duct. Mr. Stewart left on Monday on
his return. He will shortly be in Princeton again on business.
DOMINION ELECTIONS
From the Atlantic to the Pacific
Tide of Liberal Victory-
Rolls On.
Greatest Political Triumph of Modern
Times—Decimated, Dejected,
Defeated Tories.
The very latest returns of the Dominion elections give Sir Wilfrid Laurier a
majority of 71 seats with five to hear
fnm in unpolled constituencies. It is
reported on Conservative authority from
Vancouver that Mr. Burrill will not contest Yale-Cariboo, his chances for election being most meagre. The Conservative candidate for Comox-Atlin has al
ready dropped out leaving Mr. Sloan to
be elected by acclamation.
It is predicted that if the two Socialists
remain in the field in Yale Cariboo and
Kootenay they will not save their deposits of $200 each.
The five constituencies yet to poll are:
Humboldt and Mackenzie in the Northwest Territories and Yale-Cariboo and
Kootenay in British Columbia, besides
the Yukon territory.
The crushing defeat of Mr. Borden has
so paralyzed him that he will never enter
politics again if left to his own will.
Vancouver returned Mr. Macpherson
with a majority which leaves no doubt
of his personal strength and the puny influence of Sir C. Hibby Tupper against
him. t*il»i
Long live Laurier !   Vive la Canada !
l^        Visiting Journalist.
■"^A. Megrav?, editor and proprietor of
the new paper to be shortly published at
Hedley, was in town Wednesday. He is
a gentleman-of wide experience in jour
nalisrn, a trenchant and erudite writer
and of pleasing manner. In company
with Dr. Mathison, dentist, of Greenwood, he started a newspaper at Okanagan Falls in the palmy days. He has
been a student of mineralogy at the college of Applied Science, Toronto, and at
the School of Mining, Kingston. Mr.
Megraw has greht/faith in the future of
the Similkameen and is pleased with the
situation of Princeton. The printing
plant is arriving daily and the first edition of the "Gazette" will soon greet the
Hedleyites.
The work of laying rails on the Phoenix branch of the Great Northern is making good headway. Some portions of
the grade are still incomplete but double
shifts are worked to keep ahead of the
steel gang, tt is reported that contractors "are moving to Oro as soon as they
finish and will winter there.

Visitors to Princeton Admire Its Situation and Observe Great Mineral Resources.
The ore specimens for exhibition in
Vancouver have been shipped. Considerable objection has been offered by contributors of samples to sending them to
Vancouver instead of Spokane and one
gentleman withdrewjjis splendid exhibit
from the collection^t the last moment.
The grounds for denying' Vancouver the
exhibit are said to be owing to the lack
of interest its citizens have shown in the
Similkameen, and to the fact that the
city does not aim to be a mining center
while Spokane fills the bill entirely.
Next Thureday. is Thanksgiving day.
Let all the people rejoice and give thanks
for prosperity, preservation, peace and a
good Liberal government.
Mrs. Revely, of Vancouver, mother of
Fred, and Charles residing at Hedley and
Panticton, who are favorably known
throughout the Similkameen, has been
visiting her sons and incidentally making the most of her sojourn by seeing as
much of the country as opportunity presented. She was in Princeton last Sunday en route to Nicola. Her impressions
of this place and its climate were very
pleasurable. In spite of years and
matronly cares Mrs. Revely still possesses the charm uf youthfulness in a marked
degree and has thoroughly enjoyed .her.
visit.
Road foreman Goldsborough is cleaning out the road between here and Hedley which had become in very bad condition through cattle-driving over it.
Billy Lowe  shot  a fine  specimen  of
jswan recently, of^which  thexe_are large
numbers  in  the  vicinity  of Princeton.
He will have it  mounted by the taxider-
vmist and it is stated will present it to his
sweetheart   about   Christmastide.     Kit

heavy sitting down is over and then other
young ladies may expect to be  remembered affectionately likewise.
The washout on the flume which has
caused a shut down for several days of
the Daly Reduction Co's stamp mill at
Hedley is now repaired and the mill is
running full blast again.
The December Delineator, with its message of good cheer and helpfulness, has

latest styles of underwear and baby linen.
A selection of love songs from the Wag

These would be found inspiring reading

are many special articles on topics relating to woman's interests within and without the home.
Members  of  the   Liberal   association 1
at Hedley serenaded the town last Satur-
day evening when the returns of the federal  elections  became  known.    A royal
salute was fired in honor ot the occasion
by the Hedley artillery, which was under j
command  of  Captain  C. E. Oliver and i
Major W. McLean.
J. A Schubert,  the  enterprismg^mer-

furniture and hardware department.
Messrs.   Lowe/ Richter, Coulthard and
Young have   been    making their  final
roundup of cattle for the year during the I
past week     The condition of«£B~e animals
is good,  though   not so  fat  as  in some
former  years.    The  percentage   of . loss
was very trifling and the cattle kings are '
fast becoming kiuglier while the bunch j
grass is getting thinner. sISSB
Wesley Gibson, who was in Atlin last
summer, recently arrived from Chilli-
wack and will occupy his ranch near his
brother Luke on Five-Mile.
T. Hunter, supervisor of telephone construction, accompanied by Walter Clark,
arrived in town Monday from Penticton.
The line from Nicola to Penticton is now
all under construction, aud as there is
neither frost nor snow to delay good time
is expected to be made.
J. E. Spurling, recently electrical lineman for the Daly Reduction Co. at Hedley, was in town Tuesday on a pleasure
trip. He admires Princeton and was surprised at the evidences of natural wealth
all around.
Hotel Jackson has recently extended
its kitchen and added a-laundry. The
"ramrod" is now prepared for, and composedly listening to, railway grumblings.
Blind to Their Interests.
A. B. Clabon, well known in the Similkameen, in an interview with the Mining Exchange thus gives his views : "Two
things impressed me: The exceeding
prosperity of the Nickel Plate mine,
which will soon be one of the-greatest in
America, and the feeling there is.in the
Similkameen and Nicola that the coifst
people should do something to have a
direct railway. It is up to them to do
something pretty soon. The Great Northern will be building within a year, and
the trade of what I believe will be the
banner district of the province will all
go to Spokane aud Seattle. The con- ' ±
struction gang which has been operating
in the vicinity of Curlew is wintering at
Oro, which is an indication that they expect to work in the neighborhood next
spring. The people on the coast will
wake up after the rails are down and
trade is going south into the United
States instead of going west."

YALE-CARIBOO ELECTION.
A week's remove from the clangor
of a hard-fought political campaign
affords ample space in which to congratulate and  rejoice as well as to
entomb the hatchet of personal and
party  warfare.     It  would add no
glory to the decisive victory of the
memorable 3rd  of November if tbe
triumphant   liberals   were  still to
keep up a running fire on their gallant  yet leaderless  foe.    After the
exuberance of victory it  must not
be forgotten  that  the  duty of the
hour  demands a burial of the past
so that there may be  concentrated
energy from   all parties  in the. upbuilding of our  common  country.
In the few years' of truce preceding
the next Dominion  elections every
man  ought  to give  his  best personal  thought  and  deed  to whatever tends  to commercial advancement  and moral improvement.    If
every   citizen   is  actuated by these
motives the keenness of party struggles will have lost its edge and the
energy  now  wasted   in  the  mere
demolition  of each  other's propositions  will be conserved for a better  purpose.    The  great  waste of
time  and money  in useless debate
in parliament can only be remedied
by leaders of political thought fort-
going vain, selfish aims for the national good.    Canada is now on the
highway  of   prosperity,   let  every
man see to it that neither party bias,
nor the frothings of political agitators  stir  him  from  a loyal adherence  to "Canada, first, last and always."
The voters of Yale-Cariboo have
an important duty to perform on
the 22nd instant. On that day they
will give voice to their great privilege of sharing in the responsibilities of government. On that day
they go on record either for or
against a government which has
just been overwhelmingly endorsed
by the people. In the light of past
history Yale-Cariboo will in all
probability remain true to the political principles adopted since 1896,
when its allegiance to L-iberalism
was asserted in unmistakable terms.
It would be folly, nay suicidal, for
the electors to reverse their verdict
^.of former years when such mighty
local issues as railway construction
and mineral development hang in
the balance.     The predominating
industry in  Yale-Cariboo  and particularly  in   the   Similkameen,   is
mining ; a thousand dollars are invested  in  it where only one is put
into any  other.    If a  hostile  and
openly  avowed    opponent   of  the
Laurier  administration  be sent to
Ottawa  as  the  member for  Yale-
Cariboo, what could he accomplish
in securing railway legislation, better terms for the province, postoffice
buildings and sites, telephone lines,
and the opening of Indian reserves
to  public   uses ?     What influence
would such a man be likely to have
in the establishment  of a  mint in
this province and consequently gold
coinage  for the Dominion ?    How
much weight  could he throw  into
the  parliamentary  scales in behalf
of a  school  of mines for this province ?    The necessity  for experimental horse  breeding  stations for
the  improvement  of this" valuable
stock has been long recognized, and
a friendly member would  be more
likely  of securing  the desired end
than an oppositionist.    These questions are self-explanatory  and  require only momentary consideration
to convince  anyone of their importance and of the  urgency for sending a man who will not antagonize
this constituency    with    the  government at Ottawa.
If Yale-Cariboo sends an oppositionist to the house of commons
it would be tantamount to saying
that it could do without government
aid. All things considered it would
be preferable if an election could be
avoided and thus save large expenses for both parties and the government as well. Two candidates
would thus have to retire, leaving
the third to be elected by acclamation.

THE    SIMILKAMEEN    STAR
November 12, 1904
ADDRESS.
To the Electors- of Yai,e-Cariboo:
As the Liberal  candidate in  this electoral   district,   I   respectfully   solicit
your votes and influence.
No attempt will be made to discuss the
general issues of the campaign in this
address. Since receiving the Liberal
nomination in January last, I have visited
many parts of the riding and made myself thoroughly acquainted with its requirements. This work will be continued
until election day but owing to the large
extent of territory to_ be covered it is a
physical impossibility to visit all sections
or personally interview all the electors.
I therefore avail myself of this opportunity to ask for your suffrage.
Permit me to direct your attention to
some matters of local importance. Yale-
Cariboo fully warrants the expenditure of
public money in its development. The
government has already done much in
this direction. It has granted aid to several lines of railway ; government owned
telegraph and telephone lines have been
constructed ; the necessary money has
been voted to secure telephonic communication through the rich Nicola and
Similkameen districts, and telegraphic
communication between Vernon and
Kelowna. In order that the practically
inexhaustible mineral, timber and agri
cultural resources of the district may be
fully developed, this policy of governmental aid must be continued. It is important that Yale-Cariboo shall return as
its member one who can direct the atten
tion of the government to matters of
vital importance to the district and who
will support the government in its
aggressive policy of development. It is
particularly important that the electors
of this riding should show their appreciation of the government's broad, statesmanlike plan of constructing another
transcontinental railway which will be
the chief factor in opening up the northern portion of the riding. Branch lines
to connect with the southern transcontinental lines will surely follow and the
whole interior of the province will be
opened up.
Briefly, my policy, so far as Yale-
Cariboo is concerned, is a policy of development of all its important sections.
With a leader whose record fills with
pride all people of this country, irrespective of party affiliations ; supporting
a government whose eight years of wise,
progressive administration has placed
Canada in a proud position among the
.nations of the world, and at the same
time has more closely connected the ties
which bind us to the mother country,
and fully endorsing a policy which means
so much to the western portion of the
Dominion, and more particularly to the
district of Yale-Cariboo, I await with
confidence, your verdict.
Yours very sincerely.
Duncan Ross.

A Princeton sport who has had considerable experience with grouse, offers
these instructions for cooking an old
bird : Clean the bird nicely, let it dry for
two days in the sun. Nail the bird to a
pine board, cover with salt and after
standing for two days longer, boil for
eight hours, then put it in an oven and
bake slowly for six hours. Then draw
the nails out, ihr^w the grouse o.it doors
and eat the nails and board, which are
said to be as edible as the bird.
"What kind of sail are you going to

APPENDICITIS.
I      Water a Preventative and a Cure in
Certain' Stages of this Disease.
*• It is almost impossible to read a daily
newspaper thoroughly without coming
across a notice that some well known person has undergone an operation for appendicitis. .. In fact, appendicitis seems to
have become a society complaint, for it is
seldom that the working classes suffer*
from this disease.
I am not making "light" of thecom-j
plaint, for a severe attack of appendicitis
is a very serious trouble ; but it is found
chiefly in persons of sedentary habits,
while it seldom troubles persons who are
compelled to earn their livipg by manual
labor.
The first, last, and only cause of appendicitis is insufficient drinking of liquids.
In order to have perfect health a full
grown person requires in the neighborhood of two quarts of liquids every
24 hours. This.lifljjjd^jg,esquired to.supply the saliva, gastric juice, pancreatic
juice, perspiration, etc., and any stinting
of the fluids required by the body prevents the formation of these various secretions in sufficient quantity to enable
them to carry on their work*properlyS|
People that earn their living by physical labor usually perspj're? freely, and in
consequence drink freely; and it is for
this reason that appendicitis so seldom
develops in the active working class.
I never lose an>"opportunity of ques-
. tioning a person ^vho has suffered from
acute or chronic appendicitis, and, although I have questioned scores of them
in .person and by correspondence, I have
yef to find the,first sufferer from this complaint who before the attack drank anything approximating the quari|fty of
water per day required by a healthy
man.
I have been called on to treat many
cases of chronic appendicitis, and have
had no difficulty in relieving every patient permanently within a few days after
the proper water drinking habit was
established. In fact, in acute and chronic
appendicitis water drinking will be found
almost a specific cure, except when suppuration has occurred and operative
measures are imperative.
Water, hot Or cold, is the best form in
which to take the liquids, but part of the
two quarts can be taken in the form of
tea,' coffee, milk, lemonade, etc. Fruit
contains a great deal of water, and if
much fruit be eaten the quantity of liquids drunk can be reduced proportionately.
For the person who is enjoying good
health all that is necessary to keep him
forever free from appendicitis is to drink
his two quarts of water every day of his
life. He need not resort to the sipping
process. A glassful night and morning
and occasionally during business hours,
and free drinking of liquids with his
meals will enable him to consume the
necessary amount without inconvenience.
It is needless to state that the food should
be thoroughly masticated.
Air and food are life essentials which
play a very important part in health and
disease, and to be- perfectly healthy in
every respect or to regain health once
lest, air, water and fobd jare things to
which careful attention ' has to be paid.
A man may partake improperly of air
and food, and suffer from various complaints in consequence ; but if he drinks
sufficient water he will never suffer from
appendicitis.—H. A. Parkyn, M.D., in
Suggestion.
According to astronomers the Star of
Bethlehem, which conducted the wise
men to the birthplace of Jesus, will appear once more in 1910 or 1911.
